In ANITA MOLINERO’s Prequel, a wonderful new exhibition now on view at MAMCO in Geneva, the french artist revisits a group of works which plunges us into scenery with sci-fi tones and its astonishingly mutant, monstrous but always fictitious materials.

When working with materials such as plastic, I sometimes feel that I am creating fossils for the future – ANITA MOLINERO

Her sculpture are abundant, theatrical, unexpected, absurd, puzzling and humorous, some make you exult, others lead you onto the wrong path. With industrially produced materials like metal, plastic or rubber that she melts and deforms, ANITA MOLINERO creates sculptures that seem to come from a different reality. Weird plastic objects in an indefinable form lie on the floor or hang on the ceiling and confront the viewer with everyday rubbish such as post-apocalyptic rests with an element of gesture and humanness within them. All of her works seem to represent a deep insight into a personal space as well as to form a statement on a collective knowledge.

The metaphor of hysteria structures my sculpture and strikes me as much more creative, for it not only transcends but also dispossesses the self, rather than taking stock of it and cultivating it, as the metaphor of neurosis does.

And good news: Prequel is on view from october 17, 2012 until january 20, 2013, at MAMCO, in Geneva
